EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK

FRANKFURT, Germany â¿¿ The European Central Bank and the Bank of England underlined their determination to keep interest rates low in an attempt to reassure markets unsettled by the possible end of the U.S. Federal Reserve's bond-buying program. Abandoning a longtime practice of saying it "never precommits" on interest rate decisions, the ECB said it would keep its benchmark interest rate the same or lower "for an extended period of time."
